Be yourself....


Just a quick one i had linked my last post to a Paperartsy Paint challenge and after seeing what everybody else had created i really thought mine looked very out of place! So i thought i would try and redeem myself and share this, i had learned this from watching one of Leandra's you tube videos on painting using the 3 sided technique and after watching this my love of chalk paint began and i also loved the colours she had used, so i bought the same colours and created this....

i used a paper image but i can't remember where i got her from

the image looks a little ghostly as i have applied beeswax over the top, a trick i learnt from Lindsay Mason.
The metal cogs are from Tim Holtz and i think the stamps are Wendy Vecchi. I loved how the flower changed after applying beeswax to it and yes there is a touch of stickles glitter on there :)

thanks for looking and stopping by


  1. That's fabulous Elaine, and the beeswax is a wonderful finishing touch too x

  2. Well the great thing is you can enter the challenge as often as you like. I love this tag, and the corner, corner side idea is always a good starting point! Beautifully done, great image, TFS!!!

  3. Wow wow wow so loving this tag, it looks really romantic and I love the background, fantastic. Happy Art :-) Kezzy xxx
